Early Origins of the Waster family


The surname Waster was first found in Worcestershire where one of the first records of the name was John of Worcester (died circa 1140), an English monk and chronicler. He is generally believed to have authored the Chronicon ex chronicis, a world wide history which begins with the creation and ends in 1140. Florence of Worcester (died 1118), (Latin: Florentius) was another monk who probably contributed to the same work. Years later, Roger of Worcester (died 1179) was Bishop of Worcester from 1164 to 1179 and played a critical role in the controversy between Henry II of England, (Roger's cousin,) and Archbishop Thomas Becket. Sylvester of Worcester would later become Bishop of Worcester (1216-1218.)
